And it gets even worse! A few weeks ago, our mom found a Pedi Paws at a yard sale. It had been used once and then that doggie left for the bridge. Mom was really excited. US...not so much! She can use it on me and Penny, but the blond dog (aka Patches) will still have to go to the groomer to have HER manicure. That is unless our mom decides to buy a muzzle! Patches does NOT like her feets touched. She wrinkles up her lips and shows her teefies when someone touches her feets! Oh, yeah, she growls too. Since Mom would prefer to keep her fingers she will take blondie to the groomer to be Dremelled!
Here's Patches' thinking about what's going to happen to all of us! Yes, our mom has groomed doggies before...just none as large as we are! For the past two days, our pawrents have been in the basement a lot and we thought they were getting dad's tools ready to sell. Well, yeah, they were, but they also took the time to build a set of steps so we can get up on the grooming table without anyone having to lift us. Woohoo for Mom! Not so woohoo for US!
In other news, it has been one year, today, that our mom lost her job and she still hasn't found another one...hence the "home" grooming! All I can say is it sure is a good thing she sells enough on that Ebay place to still buy us doggie foods and treats!
Oh, yeah, one more thing before I go. We found out, today, that Patches has magical powers! She has been doing a lot of excess barking, lately, so our pawrents put a barking collar on her. No, the collar doesn't bark...it's supposed to prevent barking! Well, yesterday, the collar didn't appear to be working, so this morning, Mom put in a new battery. After a few barking sessions, we figured out that Patches isn't fazed one bit by that nasty collar! She's got magical powers, I tell ya! When Penny or I put it on, it shocks the "you know what" out of US!
Well, everybuddy, I'm off to hide somewhere in case our mom decides to start our Aire-cuts this afternoon! Maybe she won't do it today...we think she might be too tired after all the work she did in the basement. She even learned how to use a power saw and a nail gun...and believe it or not, she still has all 10 fingers AND both eyes! Good job, Mom and thanks for not nailing Dad to anything!
Later, everydoggie! Wish us luck!
Poppy (and Penny and Patches too)
